Re: So GH3 video looks like DSLR trash!

I assume you are referring to Andrew Reid's review on The one where he says:

"Like the Olympus OM-D E-M5, stills are an improvement on the GH2 and colour is now right up there with the Canon 7D. Especially in terms of noise in raw format and colour balance, the GH3 is a winner. The improved colour, smoother tones and wider dynamic range are to the benefit of the video mode too. Reduced are the halos around bright light sources and the banding of gradation between subtle shades. There’s now a smoother transition between different shades and tones in both stills and movie mode."

"...1080/60p at 50Mbit and 1080/24p at 72Mbit with intra-frame recording and both a 24p and 25p option on the PAL model is the tip of the iceberg of what is the best internal codec in any DSLR on the market today." (You correctly mention this.)

"If Panasonic’s cameras were laptops they’d be 2-3 years ahead of Canon."

"Like all cameras, it isn’t perfect. If you’re worried about the moire issues in video mode it helps to remember what the GH3 does better than the GH2. It is a long list."

It's easy to focus only on the negative - how about looking at the whole picture?
